Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Folorunso Adewole praised the initiative of President Muhammadu Buhari, which would see the support of the development partners.

“Gone are the days when development partners were on the driving seat of providing care for the citizenry,” said the minister.

Shettima thanked the Federal Government for promised to put in place a transparent and accountability structure that would ensure the items were solely used for the people.

The North East is afflicted by the Boko Haram violence committed by the Boko Haram crisis.

Health facilities have been destroyed and some practioners fled the crisis.
